Skincare, Where to Start?
There are so many skincare products on the market today, and to add to the confusion, there are serums, lotions, creams and other potions. So, how do you know where to start. At Mikel Kristi, we try to make this simple for you. Our serums are our powerhouse products for everything anti-aging.
Lotions and Creams are typically thought of as moisturizers. These can contain ingredients that help with anti-aging but because they are in a base of lotion or cream, these ingredients are less concentrated. Lotions and creams are made with humectants and emollients that are meant to lock water into the skin or attract water from the environment into the skin which can make the skin more supple. However, more supple skin does not necessarily mean more youthful skin. More youthful skin functions optimally with natural exfoliation, natural moisture production and collagen restoration.
Serums contain more concentrated doses of active ingredients. Serums may contain active ingredients for skin protection like the antioxidants Vitamin C or Vitamin B3. They may contain hydrating actives like sodium hyaluronate, hyaluronic acid or prickly pear extract. Some may also have active ingredients that help to restore your collagen such as Retinaldehyde Vitamin A, Peptides and growth factors. Skin brightening active ingredients like kojic acid and songyi are also important for evening skin tone. These types of serums can give you more results in less time.
As with any kind of skincare product, these ingredients need to be able to absorb into the skin to deliver those amazing results. Many product lines have amazing ingredients that just sit on the surface and don’t create the change that you are looking for. At Mikel Kristi, our cosmeceutical grade serums help improve your skin’s natural functions to reveal more youthful skin. Cosmeceuticals are formulated with special technology that allow for safe and effective penetration of active ingredients.
How do you choose?
At Mikel Kristi, we believe that your serums are the base of your skin care regime. Choose your serum based on your needs. Do you need skin brightening, evening skin tone, help with collagen restoration, skin hydration or all of it? Once you have your serums selected, then add on moisturizers if you feel like you need them. For order of application, apply thinner products like serums before thicker products like lotions or creams. With Mikel Kristi products, you can blend together any of our serums or moisturizers without losing the potency of the ingredients because of the stability of the formulations.

Bioactive ingredients… Let’s talk about what makes skincare WORK!!!
Why does Skincare have to be so complicated?
All of us want beautiful and healthy skin. We want that youthful radiance to last us for years to come. And most of us continue to fall for marketing gimmicks that tell us THIS is the holy grail product so buy me now!! So we do!! Speaking from experience, it was the constant let down that I got from product after product that led me into my career field of aesthetic dermatology and aesthetics.
